2.6GHz vs 2.3GHz Macbook Retina


I'm going to buy either macbook with retina 2.3GHz 16GB RAM 256GM SSD or version with 2.6GHz 16GB RAM and 512GB ssd. Do you think I may need the higher one? Here's what I need it for:

  • I need this computer hopefully to stay with me for FIVE YEARS

  • Lightroom 4, no more than 10 000 pictures in catalog (and probably Lightroom 5)

  • atm I use 12MP camera, buy I will go up to 18-36MP in the future (but not higher)

  • Photoshop

  • Diablo III

  • I won't be running PS + LR + Diablo at the same time. But probably PS + LR + Safari/Mail/iTunes will be a constant combo

What do you guys think? Is it worth paying extra for better processor?

Thanks in advance!
